PHILADELPHIA, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare industry and students of medicine, introduced an innovative seven-volume series on the latest techniques in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. Written by a team of head and neck surgeons widely recognized as among the best in the world, the new series, entitled Master Techniques in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, documents their proven surgical techniques using text, photos, illustrations and video.
Designed to help otolaryngologists become masters of their profession, Master Techniques in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery: Reconstructive Surgery by Dr. Eric Genden, is now available along with the first two volumes in the series: Head and Neck Surgery: Volumes 1 and 2, edited by Dr. Robert Ferris.
"Finally there is a series in which each chapter is written by a master surgeon and coordinated by a series editor, providing consistency and easy access to all the information," said Eugene Myers, MD, Series Editor, Master Techniques in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
With this series, Dr. Myers has assembled an expert author panel of surgeons that represents some of the most esteemed institutions of head and neck surgery, including Mount Sinai Medical Center, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, to document advances in both endoscopic and open surgical procedures.
"As Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery becomes increasingly procedurally focused there is a pressing need for a single series of texts to document the many new surgical techniques that have come into play," said Lisa McAllister, Vice-President and Publisher, Professional & Education, Wolters Kluwer Health. "This series, unlike any other, addresses this need by offering detailed coverage of the most advanced and innovative procedures as well the basic ones."
The Masters' series covers all areas of Otolaryngology, using a clean and efficient format with a focus on "how to do it," and provides step-by-step instructions for each procedure supplemented with thousands of color intra-operative photographs, line drawings and a number of electronically accessible videos. Designed for both specialist and generalist, the new series is expected to become a permanent fixture on the shelves of otolaryngologists, fellows in otolaryngology and plastic surgeons of the head and neck.
